bruce s kelso - Fri, Jul 24th, 2015 5:13 AM PDT
in responce to to the question of the spring tour of 1971 john did appear hear in phila at irvine aud with the jazz blues fusion lineup and both johnny and tull were on tour at that time to and played here in phila.

Dear Vicki (Jul 20th) - Wed, Jul 22nd, 2015 6:02 PM PDT
We checked with John and he doesn't remember that show. It is possible he was there, but he's done so many shows over the years that it's difficult to remember them from so long ago! We're sorry we can't help more. - johnmayall.com

Vicki Martz - Mon, Jul 20th, 2015 3:28 PM PDT
I am wondering if John Mayall appeared at HecEd Auditorium on the University of Washington campus in spring of 1971 with maybe Johnny Winters and/or Jethro Tull? My memory from 44 years ago is a bit fuzzy. But...I'm hoping you can help

Jeff Brown - Fri, Jul 17th, 2015 1:41 AM PDT
Just saw the band in Seattle tonight. I am an east coast guy and followed John for years from NY to Maryland. Great show, but the real treat was John playing "Mail Order Mystics"! I love the song and never heard him play it live! I even approached Hank Van Sickle on "myspace" years ago to intervene for me... no luck! Thanks John for one more great show. WE LOVE YOU!

Pete Stingley - Wed, Jul 15th, 2015 2:43 PM PDT
By the way, what a great website!

Pete Stingley - Wed, Jul 15th, 2015 1:55 PM PDT
We were treated to a wonderful performance tonight in the Shedd, Eugene, Or. Our grateful thanks to John and his band for that. It has occurred to us that A Special Life is one most apt for this blues legend and fine gentleman. God Bless him for his outstanding contribution to the canon of Blues music!

Joan Marie - Wed, Jul 15th, 2015 11:29 AM PDT
Fantastic show in Grants Pass. Thank you, we obviously love you here in Southern Oregon. Greg, it was a joy to watch how playful and expressive you are. Thanks for the great hug after the show. Safe travels to you all, and thanks again for the wonderful show. Joan Marie

Terry Standley - Wed, Jul 15th, 2015 9:08 AM PDT
Your performance at the Shedd last night was one of the top concerts I've ever seen (I"M 67). Your band mates were all top performers and you graciously shared the spotlight with them. Best bass player ever! I did want to hear Room to Move, but was happy with all the rest. Thanks John.

john wahlund - Tue, Jul 14th, 2015 9:50 PM PDT
incredible show at the shedd tonight. thanks.

Katrina Esquivel - Tue, Jul 14th, 2015 9:30 PM PDT
You guys were on tonight! Great show. So much talent on one stage. Thank you all. Special thanks to Rocky! You are always so kind. Can't wait for u guys to come back!!!!!

Dear Nick (13th Jul) - Tue, Jul 14th, 2015 9:13 AM PDT
Yes, we are sorry to say that John and the band will not be coming to Spain this time. They did have six dates there last year and they love to play in Spain, but the tours are put together by the promoters and John doesn't chose which countries they visit. Hopefully next year! - johnmayall.com

Nick(Seville-Spain) - Mon, Jul 13th, 2015 11:48 AM PDT
No dates for Spain?it would be a tragedy for your fans!!

Michael Rappaport - Mon, Jul 13th, 2015 7:28 AM PDT
We loved your show at Citi Winery!
And I want to thank you John, for playing "Room to Move" for my friend Julie at Yoshis in Oakland. You made at least 1 woman extremely HAPPY!

Jackson - Sun, Jul 12th, 2015 6:47 PM PDT
I was at the July show in napa, calif. 7/11/2015
At the cuty winery. I was very impressed with the show. John and the band were totally on.
They feed of the energy of the crowd, and had a great time themselves. They treated the crowd well and were very congenial after the show signing CD'S. Carry on John and the queen should knight you.
Sir John play on. !!!!!!

J.G. Preston - Sun, Jul 12th, 2015 8:31 AM PDT
Hi John--thank you for coming back to Napa this year. My wife and I had so much fun, we couldn't stop smiling through the whole show. Just fabulous music. Here's wishing you safe travels and we look forward to seeing you again.

Rick - Sat, Jul 11th, 2015 9:15 PM PDT
I saw your concert at Yoshi's last night. Enjoyed it. Impressive. Congratulations. Glad you are playing in small intimate venues like Yoshis.

Mike Conley - Fri, Jul 10th, 2015 10:35 PM PDT
Really enjoyed the show last night in Sacramento. Hope you come back soon!

Teresa - Fri, Jul 10th, 2015 10:25 PM PDT
If anybody wants to see how joy looks like, go to John Mayall's concert. Trust me, I just came back from Yoshi's.

Jack Ingram - Fri, Jul 10th, 2015 8:53 PM PDT
Saw John and his band at the Ace in Sacramento last night. I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Cu dos to the band all around. John patiently sat out front and signed CD's prior to the show. I did get the swoop from John for standing around by the table trying to figure out how to take a picture with my blasted cell phone. Left me feeling a bit mean, but then again John deserves his room to move.

bullet roberts - Fri, Jul 10th, 2015 11:39 AM PDT
thanks for the great show last night in sacramento. from graciously signing autographs before the show to totally rockin' out, everything was awesome! john's voice and playing sound as good as 50 years ago and his band is outstanding.

Jay Colbe - Fri, Jul 10th, 2015 10:22 AM PDT
Excellent show last night in Sacramento

THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Virginia Sajan - Thu, Jul 9th, 2015 11:18 PM PDT
Last night, July 9, 2015, John and his band played at a little club in Santa Cruz called Moe's Alley. I was there taking pictures all night. It was a wonderful show. John was gracious and a true gentleman with a great band backing him up. Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Ron Filiault - Thu, Jul 9th, 2015 10:51 PM PDT
Just got home from catching your show at the Ace of Spades in Sacramento. Last saw you at the Mark Hummel Blues Harmonica Blowout at Three Stages in Folsom, CA. I have to say John that your show tonight was a knockout! I've been a fan for 40 years and I cannot believe how instrumental you and your bandmates have been to the history of blues music..my opinion, of course. The group of musitians you brought with you to Sacramento are a testament to the quality of musicianship you engender in your bands. All three fellas were great players in their own right but I'll bet they will forever appreciate their experience with the John Mayall School of Blues. A big shout out for this young bass player. His solo towards the end of the set was worth the price of admission. You're a national treasure...

Tim Pratt - Thu, Jul 9th, 2015 4:54 PM PDT
Got curious and checked the Marianne Faithfull discography. No mention of John Mayall but I did learn that Mayall's "Turning Point" era guitarist Jon Mark was Faithfull's arranger and guitarist from 1965-'67 for four albums and also had song
writing credits too.

Dear Richard (22nd June) - Thu, Jul 9th, 2015 1:46 PM PDT
We asked John about Marianne Faithful and he said he did have a crush on her back then, but can't recall any particular song that was written about her. - johnmayall.com

David Van Pelt - Wed, Jul 8th, 2015 7:50 AM PDT
Saw John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers last night in Santa Barbara and they were awesome. What a great band! These guys rocked the place and John Mayall is full of energy and has put together a fantastic band. What a treat!

breanna duerr - Wed, Jul 8th, 2015 3:15 AM PDT
i am 20 years old and love your music my dad has me listening to you! love it. just wished you had a tour date in texas :(

Mace - Wed, Jul 8th, 2015 12:19 AM PDT
Just saw John Mayall and band in Santa Barbara.
Absolutely amazing performance.
The Blues are alive and well.
Blew me away with a great performance and a tight band.
His energy and talent have not diminished at all.
He is a legend and I'm so glad I got to see him in a small intimate venue.
Been listening to him since the 70s and really brought me back to my youth. A great night not to be forgotten.

kent - Mon, Jul 6th, 2015 9:29 PM PDT
my gosh I still enjoy putting on the turn table the album with "Roxann" song and "California" song live from way back in time!
I look forward to a live show in Santa Cruz, CA

Tim Pratt - Mon, Jul 6th, 2015 3:50 PM PDT
I remember reading the stories years ago and then seeing the story again about your Laurel Canyon home burning to the ground on the "Godfather of British Blues" dvd. On e of the things I remember about the original article was that your entire tape archive was destroyed including tapes from "all-nighters" at the Flamingo. Any further details about what was lost.....tim

Janet - Sat, Jul 4th, 2015 10:08 AM PDT
My grandfather, Harlon Mayall shared the story of how his grandfather came to the states from Wales. He said there is a link between the 2 of you, he just isn't sure how! Thrilled my soul. Love your music.

bruce s kelso - Sat, Jul 4th, 2015 5:49 AM PDT
thank you john for your hendrix reply .yes one show does exist from feb 67 it is the earliest complete show in ciculation.

john mayall - Fri, Jul 3rd, 2015 5:49 PM PDT
The bass solos on To a Princess were shared by Steve Thompson and Larry Taylor trading 'fours'

john mayall - Fri, Jul 3rd, 2015 5:47 PM PDT
With regard to Jimi Hendrix recordings at the Flamingo, I have no idea if they exist. They certainly weren't mine.

john mayall - Fri, Jul 3rd, 2015 5:45 PM PDT
The song Kokomo was composed by Eric Bibb so only he knows!

Maka - Fri, Jul 3rd, 2015 8:53 AM PDT
John & Band thanks for rockin' the Belly Up! Went home with a big fat smile. Playin Jazz Blues Fusion as I write this. Many mahalos bradda

Looking forward to hearing more of you in Southern California

Jan Valego - Sun, Jun 28th, 2015 10:07 AM PDT
Will you ever book a tour in the Northeast? I have been a fan since I first heard your music back in the 70's. I am now 56 and seeing you perform live is on my bucket list. In appears that most of your tour dates are on the West coast or Europe. BTW, BB King, I'm sure, would have been a huge fan of your music, and thrilled that he inspired such perfection in you.

Ron - Sat, Jun 27th, 2015 9:35 AM PDT
A new album "Find A Way To Care" is to be released in September! Keep 'em comming John.

bruce s kelso - Thu, Jun 25th, 2015 4:59 AM PDT
hello john did you tape jimi hendrix experience at the flamingo in feb 67.the tape thats has been around for many years is rumored to be from you.thanks

Brian Whiteley - Tue, Jun 23rd, 2015 4:01 AM PDT
who is john singing about on the song kokomo

Richard Brown - Mon, Jun 22nd, 2015 2:42 AM PDT
Is it true that way back in 1965 John wrote a song for Marianne Faithfull if so can you recall the title?

Rachel - Sun, Jun 14th, 2015 9:12 PM PDT
Was at the 6/13 gig at the Cannery. Bravo. Saw you at the Filmore East many moons ago. You really rocked then and still going strong.

Tim Hancock - Sun, Jun 14th, 2015 4:35 PM PDT
i was wondering why you weren't @ your RRHOF induction....conflicting tour dates?....i would have loved to seen you accept your well-deserved award...

David Mattern - Thu, Jun 11th, 2015 1:31 PM PDT
After seeing his show at Green Bay Wisconsin in 2000 I bought a t-shirt from him and I told him that I had John Mayall albums before I had Beatle albums. He smiled and signed the shirt. It's true. He is the Man! If we lived in the same city our names would be next to each other in the phone book. That's pretty cool. And, my brother's name is John.

Dave Miller - Tue, Jun 9th, 2015 6:13 AM PDT
Would love to hear John do Larry Campbell's "When I Go Away" from Levon Helm Electric Dirt.

John has been my favorite blues artisit since I was 14. Have seen him many times in Minneapolis at the Whiskey

Dinu Logoz - Sat, Jun 6th, 2015 1:37 AM PDT
Ron Zwang: The bass solo on TO A PRINCESS was played by Larry Taylor, that's for sure.

Chris - Thu, Jun 4th, 2015 5:55 PM PDT
This is indeed gushing, but it must be said - the Live In 1967 cd is simply tremendous. As much as I love the classic studio recordings from that era (and I really do - they are what made blues "click" for me), I think Live In 1967 might even trump those for me. It's completely subjective, but I love the lofi sound - raw, gritty and muscular, which is how I like blues... and Peter Green's solo on Stormy Monday in particular is, indeed, supernatural. Gushing aside, many thanks to Mr. Mayall and all involved for making these recordings available.

Pete Sargeant - Thu, Jun 4th, 2015 6:06 AM PDT
I love the enthusiasm of the fans on this site ! If you would like to read my chat with John on the new archive tapes album, head to justlistentothis.co.uk - he is a very special guy and deserves your support - Pete S

i saw the bluesbreakers in swansea top rank.it was university rag week,i think it was 1967 ,was peter playing lead .i can,t rember the date or the line up.the new live 1967 album brought it all back. peters on fire.such an important piece of history.peter has no equal.

Ron Zwang - Mon, Jun 1st, 2015 12:13 AM PDT
I'd like to redirect my question of 4/19 about "For a Princess." One of the bass players was dominate hence my question who was playing "lead bass." So which one was it?

Tom M - Sun, May 31st, 2015 2:51 PM PDT
When are they going to put John in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame? Has he ever been nominated?

His induction is long overdue.

Brian healy - Sat, May 30th, 2015 4:30 PM PDT
Tickets booked for Ronnie Scott's lat gig. Hope Rocky can do Walikin on Sumset! Look forward to speaking to Greg again .

Stuart Young - Fri, May 29th, 2015 8:51 PM PDT
I love going to all your shows and seeing the progression over the last 20+ years of your devotion to "keeping the blues alive" by involving new people. The wife and I are taking a 2+ week trip out of central California around through Montana to see a new Grandson, saw you were playing at the Tower in Bend. Picked up 4 tickets and I will surprise my other son and his girlfriend that are traveling with us when we arrive in Bend. Can't wait!!!!

Wes - Fri, May 29th, 2015 6:26 PM PDT
Saw you guys in Clearwater Florida at the Capitol Theater on the 15th. It was totally fantastic (despite the sporadic technical difficulties)! Best blues show I've ever seen. I've listened to you for over 30 years now, but seeing you guys live is what it's all about. I missed you many times at Skipper's Smokehouse down thru the years, and all I can say is the Capitol Theater is the kind of venue that you should have been playing in all along. It certainly befits an artist of your caliber. Did you real justice. I'll definitely be there the next time you roll into town. Cheers....!!

Michele Wigglesworth - Thu, May 28th, 2015 6:31 AM PDT
Hello John - I am working on the family history. You are my 6th cousin. My mum was a Mayall before she married. Rik Mayall the comic who died last year was my sixth cousin once removed. You are also linked to him. Our ancestor is John Mayall of Tameside.

Sue Haslam - Thu, May 21st, 2015 3:42 PM PDT
So excited! Just got tickets for Ronnie Scott's on Nov 3rd! Hoping there will be other UK dates following, but at least I know we'll get to see you once this year.

Dear Ilona (May 19th) - Wed, May 20th, 2015 11:14 AM PDT
Thank you for your comment. As Stu says we have posted John's tribute to BB King on our Facebook page and we're working on getting it up on the website too, so we should have it added here in the next couple of days. We apologize for the delay! - johnmayall.com

stu - Tue, May 19th, 2015 7:21 AM PDT
llona Sallan-check out the very nice tribute on the facebook page. There is no way John is going to overlook the passing of BB. Do your homework.

Ilona Sallan - Tue, May 19th, 2015 6:01 AM PDT
No tribute to B.B. King on your homepage? What a pity!!!!!

Ray - Tue, May 19th, 2015 4:03 AM PDT
I have just received "Live In 1967" and have noticed that according to my 1967 diary (the only one I've got) that I was at two of the dates. 27th April at The Marquee my diary says, "The electricity was switched off during the encore because they had exceeded the time allowed, the audience did not approve!". I was also at "Bluesville" Manor House on 5th May one of my favourite venues. Ron and Nanda ran "Bluesville" and John would bring them records from America which they would play during the break.

Wayne Weber - Sun, May 17th, 2015 1:00 PM PDT
Melbourne, Fl. Concert was FANTASTIC!!
Super good mix. Every band member exceptional. Wide selection of material and styles. John Mayall rocked blues harp, keyboards and guitar. Loved his vocals.
Tight set , greatly appreciate them coming to Melbourne.

John Boyer - Sun, May 17th, 2015 10:08 AM PDT
Hadn't seen JM since 73' at old Eddie Grahmn Sports Center outside Orlando. Last nite at King Center was totally different gig. Cannot believe the energy and obvious love of the Blues Mr. Mayall still has, and the guys he's playing with blew me away. Just finished reading Bio's and I see why they were so good, what resume's. Great show and really enjoying the primitive recording of the Mayall/Mac recording from 67' that was offered at the show. Thankyou Sir for keeping this great music alive, and for passing it down to freat young Musicians like the guys in your current band. God Bless!

ken maass - Sat, May 16th, 2015 2:02 PM PDT
Great show in Ponte Vedra this past Weds. night, John. You and your bandmates were terrific! Audience was really pumped! Keep up the positive vibes and continued success!

JK Behan - Sat, May 16th, 2015 7:46 AM PDT
we were at the King Center last night, really enjoyed it. you guys were tight. I thought it was a great send off for Blues Boy. keep playin' the BLUES!

Mr. Janusz Muszak - Fri, May 15th, 2015 8:18 PM PDT
Superb 5/15/2015 show in Melbourne, FL! John, you not only play the music, you feel the music and your audiences with you.

arthur waczkowski - Fri, May 15th, 2015 12:37 PM PDT
John, Saw your perfomance Wednesday night at Ponte Vedra. I met you before the concert and sorry I did not recognize you at 1st without your facial hair. I appologize for that. I wanted to let you know that I was looking forward to this concert for awhile and must say it was worth it. Thank you for the many years of great music and such a good concert. Art

milton devereaux - Thu, May 14th, 2015 3:18 PM PDT

Dinu Logoz - Sat, May 9th, 2015 4:46 AM PDT
Hi Ron. I am that Dinu Logoz who wrote the Mayall Biography THE BLUES CRUSADER. The book should be released around next September on a world wide basis. It was a great pleasure writing it, also thanks to the kind help of John himself.
I am sure you will like it and learn a lot of new things about John and his music when you'll read it.

Tim Pratt - Fri, May 8th, 2015 7:01 PM PDT
With all of this discussion regarding "Archive" recordings I seem to remember that 10+ years ago there was talk that a tape of a Bluesbreakers w/ Clapton show from Scotland had surfaced. Does John Mayall have this tape in his vaults?

Tim Pratt - Fri, May 8th, 2015 6:54 PM PDT
No need to apologize for the lack of info regarding the recording dates. I'm just happy to hear the music and like a few others have said I would liked it even more if complete shows had been released.....Tim

Charles Neil - Fri, May 8th, 2015 1:14 PM PDT
Mr. Mayall, I've been a fan for more years than either of us wouldn't want in front of us. I just listened to Gimme One More Day again and I hope you got the plug in the jug. Best to you. If you see Walter Trout, yell him he's being prayed for. Pax. Charlie

Dear Richard (April 26th) and Ray and Tim, - Fri, May 8th, 2015 11:46 AM PDT
Thank you for your questions and we're happy to hear that you're enjoying the CD! We did some checking and it seems very likely that the dates aren't correct, especially the 1st Feb date, but as Ray says this far down the line it's very difficult to get the accurate information. It is certain that they were recorded at those clubs and around April/May 1967 and that may be as clear as we can get at this point. We're sorry that we can´t give you the exact information! - johnmayall.com

bruce s kelso - Fri, May 8th, 2015 8:05 AM PDT
hi to all.just got the live 67 cd.what great time period.not happy that it is a composite show.own the whole 27th show.would of liked all 5 shows put out as a nice box set better.cant find any bare wires group live except whats on the primal solo.my favorite lines up are.that and the crusade period. are my favorite. years ago i was in contact with tom who taped thoses five shows told him to ask john bout putting them out them out look like he did.its a shame that we cant have all five complete.check out his bands 1970 lp called wild blues by john the revelator its on the pseudonym label cd released in 2003 and as bob the bear hite said dont forget to boogie.

Tim Pratt - Thu, May 7th, 2015 3:29 PM PDT
Just checked Pete Frame's Rock Family Trees book and John Mayall's 1988 12" "Last Time" single with an updated Frame family tree:
Aynsley Dunbar- Sept. 1966> April 1967
Mick Fleetwood- April 1967> May 1967
Micky Waller- temp fill in for a few gigs
Keef Hartley- June 1967> April 1968..

Ray - Thu, May 7th, 2015 12:47 PM PDT
I thought I would be able to help Richard Brown (Apr 26) as I actually have my 1967 diary! Although I saw John Mayall 26 times that year I cannot help him with the actual dates he is questioning. That year I saw among others, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Bo Diddley and many others. Great times.

Dear Ron (May 4th) - Thu, May 7th, 2015 11:56 AM PDT
Thank you for your question. We've had a few people asking about that book, and though John has done some interviews with Dinu over the years he hasn't seen the book, so is unable to give any comment until he has. - johnmayall.com

Tim Pratt - Thu, May 7th, 2015 7:07 AM PDT
Thanks for the info! I was hoping that it was a tape issue and not an edit due to time restraints...the cd is 76+ minutes long which is close to the max. Anyway,have played it through 3 times and love it!...tim

Brian - Thu, May 7th, 2015 2:15 AM PDT
Just great to hear a young Peter Green live. The solo on So Mamy Roads is fantastic but there is also a beautifully restrained and constructed solo on Hi Heel Sneakers ! Good to hear John cracking out the solos on the old Hammond organ as well. Great stuff.

Dear Tim (5th May) - Wed, May 6th, 2015 10:14 PM PDT
We asked John about the fade out on "So Many Roads," and it turns out that Rob is exactly right! The tape ran out at that point which is why the song ends like that. It is a shame, but it we think it still makes for great listening. - johnmayall.com

Rob - Wed, May 6th, 2015 7:57 PM PDT
Tim, I haven't heard "Live 67" yet. Back in the day, recording was done on magnetic tape, which had a limited length. It was not unusual for the tape to run out in the middle of a song during a live performance. It was also not unusual to miss the beginning of a song while the reel of tape was being changed. At least we have what we got!

Tim Pratt - Tue, May 5th, 2015 1:00 PM PDT
Listening(again!) to the "Live In '67 cd and am wondering why "So Many Roads" is cut off before the song ends.My first reaction was "there ought to be a law against this!!!". I'd rather have the complete version than 7+ minutes of"Hi Heel Sneakers""

Ron - Mon, May 4th, 2015 10:54 PM PDT
I see AMAZON are listing a new book for pre order......John Mayall: The Blues Crusader Hardcover – December 1, 2015 by Dinu Logoz (Author)
Any comment?

Mark Dirga - Mon, May 4th, 2015 9:59 AM PDT
John Mayall was the first concert I ever saw. It was 1970 or 1971 at the Honolulu International Center. Loved it! I remember the opening band was Froggy and the Phantom Leopard. Now, I have tickets to see JM in Melbourne, Florida on May 15th, 2015. Super excited. Been a concert hound ever since that first show. Seen hundreds of bands. Got tickets to 20 shows this year alone. But, this is the one I'm most excited about. Can't wait. Thank You, John Mayall for touring.

Hi guys,

Re:- Live in 1967.... Can you please clear up some dates for me Febuary 1st 1967 surely Anysley Dunbar was on drums I thought Mick Fleetwood joined in April that year, also according to "Strange Brew" book John Mayall was at the Oxford Cellar Norwich on that date not The Ram Jam Club. and also The April 28th gig was at the Ram Jam Club in Brixton not Klooks Kleek. Please can you help sort the confusion. Great cd though.

Hi John, many thanks for taking the time to reply, I have followed you from 1965, met you many times over the years at various UK gigs, I was at the Bromley gig from the 67 era all those years ago too and hoped you would put it out as a complete show, you have also over the years autographed my entire collection of flyers, tickets, programmes, posters etc dating back that far too, also have all the albums and last saw you at Birmingham Symphony Hall.Take care and hope to see you soon.

I'm loving the new "Live In 1967" cd. Peter Green's playing on this could be the best blues guitar I've ever heard in my life. I've always liked his playing, but this CD takes it to a new level. Wow!

Thanks for the reply to my April 8th question. I had the "Blues Alive NYC" as a suprise present yesterday. It came from Amazon so if it is a bootleg I am shocked!!!
The sound quality is good and John, Gary Rowles and the band turn in quality performances. I am just reporting this as I feel John should know the position.

Thank you for the question. The bass players on "To a Princess" would be Larry Taylor and Steve Thompson. Good to hear that you're still enjoying it! - johnmayall.com

Who played the "lead bass" on "For a Princess"? I can never tire of listening to it.

These are live recordings taken from those 5 shows. John picked the best of versions of the songs from each recording to release in the CD, and they're pretty amazing. We don't think you'll be disappointed! - johnmayall.com

Dear Ron (Apr 8th) - Thu, Apr 9th, 2015 2:24 PM PDT
Yes, we saw that "Live in 1976" release too! It is a bootleg and not an official release and we haven't heard it, so can't give any other feedback on it. - johnmayall.com
